About Opihr Arabian Edition Gin and 1 Travel Mug
This uniquely balanced citrus and spice-led gin with concentrated lemon notes is inspired by the Iranian love for Persian black lemons, or ‘loomi’ (actually sun-dried limes), which add a unique tangy and earthy flavour to Middle Eastern chutneys and stews. Black lemons play a central part in Persian cooking thanks to their sweet citrus flavour and the lack of bitters that other lemons bring – due to the drying process which is similar to sundried tomatoes – and gives the lemons their curious colour.
The powerful bursts of Persian black lemons are heightened further by the zesty citrus flavours of Timut peppers, making the Arabian Edition a carefully crafted and perfectly balanced London Dry gin, elevated through the marriage of citrus and spice.
DISCOVER THE JOURNEY ALONG THE ANCIENT SPICE ROUTE
Ophir is a region famed for its wealth and riches which prospered during the reign of King Solomon. The King regularly received cargoes of gold, silver and spices from Ophir and whilst its exact location remains a mystery, it is thought to have been in the Orient along the Ancient Spice Route – a network of sea routes that link the East with the West.
The routes stretch from the West coast of Japan through the Islands of Indonesia, around India and the Middle East – and from there, across the Mediterranean and into Europe. Traditionally merchants would travel thousands of miles along the route, trading exotic spices and botanicals from distant lands.
THE OPIHR RANGE
To continue the journey of flavour discovery, OPIHR launched three Regional Edition gins – European Edition, Arabian Edition and Far East Edition. Each are routed in particular regions along the Ancient Spice Route, drawing inspiration from unique and exotic global flavour trends.
The three Regional Editions combine the unmistakable taste of OPIHR London Dry Gin with distinctive botanicals from along the Ancient Spice Route and share our increasingly adventurous exploration of authentic regional flavours that make our gins distinctly unique, bringing new and exciting tastes to the palate. And that’s not even counting the ready to drink collection: all you need to do for the perfect gin cocktail is just twist and go.
